Velvet Dress for the Holidays (Stylewe review)

The holiday season is here! Glam outfits for who loves a glam season and I’m definitely one of them.

And here’s another holiday-season outfit to inspire you, a beautiful dress in black velvet that’s so elegant for the most festive time of the year.

Dress: StyleWe | Belt: Rafaela Mantovani

This dress makes me feel so elegant, in black velvet and with a boat neck, the dress is classy and sophisticated for the holiday season.

But to make it even more festive, I paired this black dress with golden accessories, like a golden pair of shoes and golden jewelry.

Black Velvet Dress

Golden shoes

Since winter it is, wear a big and warm coat over it to keep you warm. Instead of going for the most obvious choice of a black coat, I decided to go to a off white coat, that, by the way, is a very long coat and I love it for the colder days.

Because every one who loves a glam outfit should have a little black dress that’s elegant, classy and should I dare to say, fancy. Because you can also look gorgeous even when you go for more affordable brands and I love to mix them to create my outfits. This velvet dress is from a website called Stylewe and I’ve been finding many lovely pieces over there.

This dress is great to value the body’s silhouette, specially if you wear it with a belt in a high waited way.

For the hair, I decided to go for a braid hairstyle that’s also very elegant:

Holiday Outfit: Red dress (Stylewe review)

Christmas is just around the corner, so we are officially on Holiday season! And if you think a red dress is a cliche as a Christmas’ outfit, wait until you see this red dress.

It could be that I’ve been on a “red mood”, but at this moment I’ve been loving red pieces, like red dresses or red coats, I’ve been obsessed with red clothing lately (specially dresses). So it was no surprise to myself that when I was choosing some outfits for the Christmas season, I’ve picked a red dress.

Perfect for the parties this season or, let’s face it, in other parties all year around, it’s a red dress elegant enough for a dinner, going out or end of the year Holiday parties.

It’s cold outside? Add a black coat and attack! A black woolen coat is elegant and perfect to be paired with this dress, that also has some black and silver details (I said it was party-perfect).

 

Did you like my gloves touch? I get quite cold during the fall/winter season and I love some accessories such as gloves and scarves to keep me warmer. It’s that little detail that sometimes makes a difference in getting warmer and also in style.

And after all, fashion is all about choosing the outfits you like more and having fun!

Pink Sweater Dress (Popjulia Review)

Who doesn’t love a sweater? I definitely do, because it’s so cosy for the fall and winter season and what if we talk about a sweater dress? Yes!

Comfy, cosy and easy to wear, this is how I describe a sweater dress, make it in light pink (or millennial pink if you prefer) and you’ve got a perfect outfit for the cold days of this season.

I love a more feminine style and this light pink dress is perfect for that, to get a cosy and cute fall/winter outfit with style and femininity.

To make it cozier, I paired the sweater dress with lovely ballerina flats in pinky nude and a light colored handbag, making the whole outfit a bit lighter in color, even with the black coat. Who said we should wear only dark colors for fall?

I love to have a touch of light color for fall and winter, it’s also very beautiful.

 

I also love dresses and tops with a turtle neck for winter, it just keeps me warmer in windy weathers like fall here in Milan. The shiny and reflexive sunglasses, give a touch of modernity to this cute outfit:

This dress is from a website called Popjulia, they have a wide range of outfits and dresses with very affordable prices. This is my first garment form their website, but it has a nice and soft fabric and the dress was well made, so it could be definitely worth checking if you’re looking for affordable pieces.

 

Here are some other photos of my outfit with this cute sweater dress in light pink that I took around here in Milan:

Paired with this black coat, the dress get an elegant look, it’s a perfect outfit for work or even for going around the town during the day.

Floral Print dress for fall (StyleWe Review)

Here’s another fall outfit to inspire you, with another print dress, this one in a floral print.

I guess you’ve already noticed how I’m loving prints for this fall, right?

Floral dress Stylewe

Dress: StyleWe

For this outfit, I’ve picked a floral dress with an elegant maxi print, which always makes a statement look. And this floral print dress is cute, elegant and somehow bold, all at the same time, for a perfect fall look.

With the playfulness of the sheer fabric, it makes this dress more elegant and cooler.

With a light fabric, it can go from day to night, you just need to dress it up with accessories, ilke high heels and a small handbag or clutch for a night out.

Instead of going to the black accessories, I decided to go with grey shoes, to give it a different touch, even though grey is a neutral color and, therefore, easy to mix and match with other colors,

 

Since the cold days are already here, a good woolen coat was my choice to keep me warm in the cold fall days here in Milan. In navy blue to make it an elegant combination, but you can also go bolder when matching a coat to a dress, for an harmonic combination, just pick one color from the dress’ print, the more vibrant is the color is choose, the bolder will be your outfit.

The dress is made in a light fabric with some almost silky-finish.

Sometimes when you order online, I already had the experience of buying a print dress and when I received it, the print was not beautiful nor feel made. But I’m happy to say that all dresses I own from StyleWe never had this problem, they have always been so pretty and well made, so I’m happy they have some quality pieces with an affordable price. Over all, my StyleWe review has been quite positive.

I still love to wear the coat like a cape, you know, when it’s not too cold, it makes your outfit more stylish.

In order to create a ladylike outfit, don’t forget to pick some delicate accessories as well. Court shoes with some jewelry, a delicate handbag as well as earrings, a bracelet and some rings, all of them in a delicate style to match the whole outfit.

The dress is made in jacquard, so it’s gives a lot of shape and structure to the dress, making it to stay in this shape of a skirt on A-line silhouette (A-line is the name of this shape of skirt that looks like the letter “A”, its tight on the waist and big and voluminous at the end of it).

Red dress: outfit in Milan

A red dress is so important as any black dress in a woman’s wardrobe, it’s a statement kind of piece that’s already a classic in fashion and a must-have.

So here’s my choice of outfit with a little red dress, straight from a hidden little palazzo in Milan.

A red dress with ruffles, that always make a piece more feminine, even if in scarlet red! I paired this dress with black high heels and an updo in my hair, just because it’s incredible hot here in Milan.

I’m really enjoying this red dress, it’s easy to wear and it’s also perfect to pair with ballet flats for a more comfortable outfit and a different kind of look.

The red dress is from a website called StyleWe, it’s a website that sells independent fashion designer pieces and I found it so cool, I was contacted by them to pick two outfits and this lovely red dress was one of them. The dress quality is really good and the fabric is soft, so I was positively impressed.

For the jewelry, I’ve picked some almost minimal pieces in gold and a cool watch to give this outfit a little hint of coolness. A long necklace, a pair of earrings and quite a few rings + a bracelet.

Well, since there is never enough red on an outfit, I worn this red dress with red lipstick, the one and only and my favorite red lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC, just to complete this outfit with the right amount of red. On my eyes, my signature makeup look with eyeshadows in tones of brown, elegant and it will always go with virtually any outfit.

Destroyed jeans outfit

And the destroyed jeans have not got me tired yet, I love to create a slightly tidier look with basic T-shirt, destroyed jeans and add more luxurious accessories, as this golden court shoes with jewelry. The combination takes the basics of this look and gives a more of a chic look.

Do you know when you start choosing the look by the shoes, does anyone else does it? I do this all the time. And when I bought this pair of shoes, even though it was all decorated pair, I had already imagined it with a look with destroyed jeans and a simple t-shirt, so the focus would be on this beautiful pair of shoes.

To complete this outfit, several accessories like this vintage necklace, the wooden earrings are from Monili di Legno (a brazilian brand that create accessories with wood) and colored bracelets to bring some color to my outfit.

Summer Dress in Floral Print

Straight from Milan’s spring, a floral dress outfit on Via della Spiga, one of the streets that forms the famous Fashion Quadrangle (Quadrilatero della Moda) here in Milan, known for being a neighborhood of fashion and sophistication.

I love a more delicate and feminine style, but to bring a trendy touch to my outfit and make it a little bit different, I decided to go for a metallic bag in rosé color.

An informal look, but cute and preppy. To make it comfy and pretty, I decided to go for ballerina flats, besides it’s super comfortable to walk around Milan.

 

The floral dress is very spring-like and fresh, after all, the weather here is more like summer than spring.

My accessories for this look with my floral dress were very minimalist and just a few pieces: just a pair of small ring earrings in rosé and a ring:

Milan Fashion Week’s fashion shows and presentations usually take place in the central region of Milan, always with amazing scenery places nearby the shows, you can always follow everything in real time at my Instagram @manuluize, just check my Instagram Stories.

Near the venue to one of MFW’s afternoon shows, we photographed my outfit in the Brera region in Milan, which is known both for the most artistic part of the city (for having the famous Brera Academy, the Academy of Fine Arts in Milan), and for having several busy restaurants and bars. The region has a beautiful and classic architecture in several streets and it was all about my delicate and elegant look, but with a touch of modernity (take a look at the heels of my shoes).

My hairstyle was very simple, just with a false cascade braid, which is actually very easy to do, since I don’t even know how to do a cascade braid.
